Web2Carz.com Releases Inventory Listing iPhone App

March 05, 2009

HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. – Web2Carz.com Ltd. has announced the release of the first fully integrated auto dealer inventory listing application for the iPhone.

Unlike other auto classified listing applications, the Web2Carz iPhone application has been designed to run natively on the iPhone and the iPod Touch platforms. The app was designed to allow iPhone users to search a national database of cars for sale, view images, see detailed listings for each car, read CARFAX reports, and much more.

"Web2Carz.com continues to develop the latest in technology

to help our auto dealers sell more cars while improving the bottom line," said Web2Carz co-founder Alex Bravy. "The best thing about the Web2Carz iPhone application is that we are exposing the dealer’s inventory to a whole new audience for free. It’s 100 percent free Internet advertising. Dealers can post their inventory and receive free sales leads with no setup fee, no monthly fee, and no limit on images. It’s a win-win

proposition."

Consumers can quickly contact a dealer about a vehicle listing by using the iPhone one-touch

call feature or sending an inquiry right from the Web2Carz application. Auto

dealers can post their inventory to Web2Carz.com and the iPhone application at

no charge and receive free sales leads. To date over 500 dealers have inventory

listed.

Key features of the application include:

- Search by make and model

- Search within a Zip code and distance range or use current location (optional)

- Sort by price, year or mileage

- Filter by max price and/or max mileage

- Auto save of search criteria

- Tap the CARFAX logo to view a car history report

- Tap the phone number to call the seller

- Automatic capture of user contact information

The company noted a recent study that showed that nearly 85 percent of the approximately 1.3 million iPhone owners use it to access the Internet regularly — more than most other handheld devices. The beta version of the Web2Carz iPhone application was demonstrated in January at NADA 2009 and received a very positive response from the dealer community as well as industry insiders. The link to the application for iPhone users can be found here.
